It was two-nil. Harsh on Norn Iron based on what I saw. Their performances should shame Scotland.

Scotland are absolute mince. 4 losses in a row, first time in 15 years.

Stop sniggering at the back.

Scottish people like mince. The correct phrase is "absolute pish".

As you were.

In other news, women were allowed to attend an Iran game, only 3,500 of them but it's a start.

And, down the road, Iraq were able to play their first real home game in eight years.

South Gate has lost the plot.
Kane is a blunt instrument.
That midfield is shit.
England have reverted to type.

Anyone see the penalty given to France against Iceland?! I’m not sure if VAR is being used in the qualifiers but that is an absolute joke of a decision to award that.

Shame, he seems to have fallen for the same old crap previous England managers have in that reputation is everything.

England have reverted to type.

They've lost one qualifying game in ten years. They made the Semi-Finals at the last World Cup AND at in the Nations League. They'll still qualify for the Euros, it will be just be a few days later than it might have been. France lost a game in qualifying on their way to winning the last World Cup and Portugal managed to lose at home to Albania before winning the last Euros.

The end is nigh, sure enough.

Not so sure that’s the reason. For instance he played Sancho and Mount last night based on their performances this season but they didn’t contribute. It was just a poor performance all round.

Rice and Henderson is utterly pedestrian. Henderson is too slow in transition and Rice, as seen at Villa Park, thinks hes playing rugby as that ball wont go forwards.

Couple that with Mount being clueless positionally and seemed to choke the space for Sterling, without offering anything creative, then we had big issues going forwards.

Add that with how utterly woefully out of form the back four were. What on earth Keane does to ne picked I have no idea, let alone when Everton are having a mare. McGuire is one paced and Rose...yikes.

No press, no movement, no attempt to stretch them.

Dire selection, dire system and dire implementation. Southgate couldn't have got it more wrong.
